If pollen season leaves you wheezing like a pack a day smoker it’s time to get more fish in your dish.
Respiratory specialists from Rio de Janeiro University found in an eight week study on mice that when fed a diet high in fish oil, allergen-induced lung inflammation and asthma symptoms were reduced. The fish oil lowered the mice’s lungs sensitivity to common irritants helping to reduce their incidence of asthma.
While we don’t suggest you chuck your inhaler just yet, adding more fish into your weekly menu may help you manage your asthma this spring.
